Can your site be used to locate a Conveyancing solicitor in Chesterfield even where I’m not purchasing or disposing of a house, for instance where I wish to acquire an office in Chesterfield with a loan from Virgin Money?
The service is primarily utilised to select domestic conveyancing solicitors in Chesterfield but we have recorded towards the bottom of this page a few Chesterfield commercial conveyancing firms. You will need to enquire with the solicitors directly to see if they are also authorised to represent Virgin Money
I have a decision in principle. The lender mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to use their panel lawyer as I would much rather use a specialised conveyancing solicitor in Chesterfield?
Do check but the the probability is that give you one of their panel solicitors should you accept the "fee-free" offer. Contact the mortgage company and explore if they offer you a monetary alternative. It is not unheard for a lender to give a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case you could put that amount towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor in Chesterfield.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified as part of conveyancing in Chesterfield?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Chesterfield. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
I am buying a new build flat in Chesterfield. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.
Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Chesterfield
If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Please supply a car parking plan. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and found one close by in Chesterfield I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Chesterfield for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
